Solid Air songs Product Information
Solid Air album for sale by John Martyn was released Jun 16, 1998 on the Island (Label) label. He began as a folksy minstrel but seemed drawn to experimental, free form improvisation.

John Martyn - Solid Air Album Track Listing

This has been one of my top five Cds/lps since first hearing the cut Solid Air late night on a hot summer evening on the radio in Waco, Texas. Those was they days when alternative radio across the country ruled. John's passing is sad, and this is a solid tribute to his career.

There are hundreds of great albums out there. Then there are a few that sit just above on their own. This is one of the latter. Its almost impossible to pick highlights because the quality throughout is so high. Has been in my top ten for decades and does not look in danger of being bumped down the list anytime soon.

What higher compliment for a musician than one from your peers, and E.C. at that. Solid Air runs from splendid folk (May You Never, Over the Hill,)to the electric echoplexed guitar(I'd rather be the devil). The bass playing of Danny Thomson is also amazing.
